Founded in 2006, the Cornell Electroacoustic Music Center (CEMC) provides a place for experimental music creation and production as well as a forum for research into emerging creative technologies. CEMC continues Cornell's deep historical roots in electronic music, providing an environment of creativity and exploration, inciting students and faculty composers, DJ's, performers, and scholars to investigate into new interfaces, paradigms, and sound worlds. The Center is, therefore, primarily a place of openness, an outgrowth of the diversity of interests at Cornell as a whole. The Center's mission is to widen the perspective of what is available, looking toward helping students develop their own artist toolkits.
CEMC's facilities include five studios--one primarily multichannel studio and four workstations, a 14-station teaching lab, as well as several roving performance and field recording systems including a state-of-the-art multichannel rig and a cubic array for installations and research.
This site acts as a public portal for information about CEMC. In addition to public content, it offers student and faculty access to course information, studio documentation, troubleshooting, communication in the form of studio forums (registered users only), news and event listings, as well as personal and shared web/blog space.
Feel free to peruse these pages and/or request a user account to participate. User access will be given to anyone connected with the studios directly including those who have taken courses in digital music previously or other faculty who are interested in using the facilities for creative purposes.
